Farmhouse Style: Decorating with Wire Baskets

One of my favorite ways to add farmhouse charm to our home is with wire baskets. I just love the simple and clean look and they are so versatile. Plus you can hardly watch an episode of Fixer Upper without seeing a wire basket, which is maybe why I’m so obsessed with them. Either way, my house is full of wire baskets so today I wanted to share how I use these little gems in my everyday decor. I’m also including a few very similar farmhouse style baskets that are available on Amazon!

Farmhouse Style: How to Decorate with Wire BasketsWould you believe that I never hung baskets on the wall until about a year ago? Strange, I know. And now this is my favorite way to use them. Here’s a few examples:

I found these for a bargain price at Hobby Lobby. I love how simple and easy they were to hang and it’s fun to switch out the goodies inside from time to time. I also found a slightly smaller set that works perfectly for books in the play area. Amazon has this great country rustic gray basket that is very similar.

Moving into my breakfast nook, here is another option:

I found this vintage basket at a local antique show and I loooove it. Plus I got it for $7, but that makes me love it even more. I think it’s perfect hanging on the wall. Another good option is this hanging wall pocket wire basket on Amazon.

And one last pair of hanging basket in our front entryway. These baskets each had a wire handle, but those made them too rigid to hang. So I removed the handles and used twine to hang them from the coat rack. Easy fix! A similar option on Amazon would be these rectangular country style baskets–perfect to hang with a bit of twine!

I also have two large baskets in our mudroom.

I found these baskets in a pile of junk…Don’t judge me! At the time I had no idea what I would do with them, but I brought them home anyway. Imagine my surprise when I realized they fit perfectly on the shelves in our mudroom! I love the texture and rustic look they add to this space. Another great alternative is this larger rustic style basket from Amazon–these would also be perfect for mud room storage.

And lastly, here are a few other fun and random ways I use wire baskets in my decor:

Can’t go wrong with a basket and a blanket.

Or a basket and a few pretty bottles. I found an almost identical basket (with bottles!) on Amazon. Or this basket and bottle combo that is also very farmhouse style!

  7. When some one searches for his required thing, therefore he/she needs to be available that in depth, thus that thing is maintained

    I love the hanging baskets and wooden crates that are going on walls now. I have 4 baskets that have some weight to them that I’d like to put on my bathroom walls but I am struggling trying to find what to mount or hang it to wall. I got curtain rods but the studs don’t align for them. Any ideas???

  • Mom finished her first 10k 🙌🏻🙌🏻 It was such a fun day & I’m honestly so glad I decided to challenge myself & do this. Sure, it was only 6.2 miles, but this race (and all of my running leading up to it) was one of the first things I’ve done for myself in a loooooong time. My health has totally been on the back burner since having my third baby. But three months ago I started running to help with my anxiety & worry-about-all-the-things syndrome. I fell in love & it’s been SO good for me. Running is one of my favorite things to do now 👏🏻👏🏻 I want to encourage all of my fellow mama’s out there to make time for yourself. Do something for YOU. Take the class. Book the ticket. Go for the run. You are worth it! ❤️❤️
  • Cheers to the weekend, coffee in bed + sunshine in the forecast 🙌🏻☀️ Our snow is melting, which is GOOD news because my first 10K is tomorrow. Eeeek! Fingers crossed I can make it through with my old lady hip🏃‍♀️💨Happy weekend buddies! ❤️ #liketkit #ltkhome
  • Breaking News: It snowed in Colorado today ❄️❄️ Normally I’d be less than thrilled about this kind of thing, but I figure why not have a little fun. Sometimes you just gotta accept what you can’t change & make the best of it, right?! Besides, doing a live weather report in the freezing snow is pretty fun. (watch my stories if you missed it!) Happy almost-weekend buddies! ❤️
  • It’s totally normal to carry around a pumpkin in October, right?! And by normal I mean awkward. Because that’s what I do best. Clearly. 🙈 I shared a quick decorate with me video in stories yesterday + we styled this cabinet for fall 🍂🍂 I also have a new blog post up today & it’s 10 affordable fall finds from Amazon. I found some GOOD stuff + it’s all super affordable. Head to the blog to check it out! 🙌🏻🙌🏻 #liketkit #LTKhome
  • Cozy Monday night views 🙌🏻😍 We just had homemade pizza for din din + now it’s time for cozy clothes & football. Not too shabby to start the new week!! ❤️ #liketkit
  • Snug as a bug in the coziest weekend spot 🙌🏻🍂 I finally got the back patio spiffied up for fall & this is officially my new favorite spot to hang out. Let’s just hope I can keep those new mums alive for more than a few days 😬👩‍🌾 Hope you all had the best weekend! #liketkit
